I lived in Tolosa for my first eight years in Spain. This is where my kids were born (well technically they were born in San Sebastian- the anesthesiologist in Tolosa only worked six hours a day and I couldn´t risk it.), I learned Spanish, had a language academy, and walked up a mountain every day (you should have seen my tush). This is also where I learned to be diplomatic, the merits of humility, and what a tomato really tastes like. I guess you could say this is where I finally grew up.
I´ve been really busy this past week and it doesn´t seem like it´s going to slow down for a couple more. I´ll be around soon. Don´t eat all the cookies!
